Post An image of Marie Therese Charlotte as a baby.
I was on the internet and I found a fashion plate with a baby picture of Marie Therese and a governess. This fashion plate is from the MFA. I found this rather strange and delightful at the same time. I thought it was strange that this image was on a fashion plate. I was also delighted by the novelty as well. Enjoy.

It does look a bit strange doesn't it? I wonder what object Madame Royale is holding?

I think it is a collapsible fan.

She's dressed just like an adult - were the more privileged children dressed like this every day or just for more formal occasions? Sorry for the stupid question!

It is sad, the Museum of Fine Arts does not have any eighteenth century prints like this on display currently, none that I have seen anyway. However, it appears they are adding a very large addition to the building, so we can only hope they will put some nice things like this on display! But they do have a few things which belonged (supposedly) to Marie Antoinette on display, which are very nice... :wink:

Does the statue represent the king, on the left of Madame Royale? What do you think?

Yes children were dressed as miniature adults until say the 1780's or 1790's

Yes, one would think it is. Considering there is also a portrait of Antoinette behind the governess.

People have always loved their children, but the in the 1780's there was more of a market geared towards them, there more more toys and the clothes were more comfortable.
